Preparing for the end of all things... jettisoning my accumulated mental detritus. Fantasy; myth; Tolkien; dragons; elves; history; heroes; metal; cats; landscapes; plus female landscapes...

"[I had to endure] a couple of years of absolute hell. I did every job under the sun from bartending to ushering to temping. I can remember sitting and having a sandwich in Pimlico or somewhere when I was temping – and crying into my Tesco sandwich, thinking ‘What happened? I’m supposed to be sitting in a beautiful library in Cambridge’. I felt like I was a failure."

Irimë was a Noldorin elf, the daughter of Finwë, the High King of the Ñoldor and Indis; sister of Fingolfin,Finarfin, Findis, and half-sister of Fëanor.
Irimë was born during the Noontide of Valinor, probably in Tirion. She was the third child of Finwë and Indis and their second daughter. Little is known about her except that she joined the Revolt of the Ñoldor and went to Middle-earth with Fingolfin and his company.
Irimë’s fate is unknown but she may have been slain in one of the Battles of Beleriand, or returned to Aman after the Dagor Bragollach.

Rhiannon is a lunar Welsh goddess of inspiration. Her name means “Great Queen,” and serves as a muse for poets, artists, and royalty. She is also a goddess of transformation, easing the dead into the afterlife and carries their souls upon her white horse. She is a shapeshifter, and will often appear as a bird, animal, or through a song.
